Pocket GPS World Review: the Ristretto (9 out of 10)

Pocket GPS World review of the Ristretto

“The Ristretto is my iPad bag Xanadu. It’s the bag I had almost given up on. Tom Bihn clearly love their products and it is easy to see why. They are lovingly made, the design has is well thought out and there are countless small design touches. No other bag I have used ticks as many boxes as this one and if I have to criticise anything it would be the cost.

But even that feels a little churlish. These are bags to be loved, used and probably passed on and when looked at in that way, they are an investment that will repay you with many years of use.

My search is over.”

“The Tri-Star is not only durable, it also comes with several different carry methods. You can use it as a backpack, a cross-shoulder strap or even a normal over-the-shoulder strap concoction. Jake has been using these particular bags since 2006, and reports that he has never had any issues with wear and tear. They stand the test of time while saving you space. That, my friends, is what the perfect carry-on should be doing.”

In stock: Tri-Star in Indigo/Solar, Steel/Ultraviolet, Black/Iberian, more

The Tri-Star — our mid-size convertible carry-on travel bag — is now in-stock in colors Indigo/Solar, Steel/Ultraviolet, Crimson/Steel and Black/Iberian. Note: this is the last time that the Tri-Star will be made available in Indigo/Solar or Crimson/Steel, and we don’t have many, so order soon if you’d like one. (Don’t worry: our custom 1050d ballistic nylon colors Crimson and Indigo will be leaving to make way for two new colors which we plan to introduce soon.)

Gadget Análisis…en Español review of the Ristretto

“El Ristretto for iPad es un bolso innovador. Tiene una gran capacidad que no necesariamente salta a la vista en un principio, hasta que empezamos a cargarlo y llenarlo de lo que llevamos cotidianamente con nosotros. Uno de los aspectos más importantes que buscamos en nuestro proceso de investigación, fue el de encontrar bolsos que -aparte de estética, practicidad y polifunción – brinden protección superior de posibles golpes o maltratos a nuestro iPad. El Ristretto también logró impresionarnos en ese punto.”

Translation, courtesy of Eliam Puente, our Customer Service Representative:

“The Ristretto for iPad is an innovative bag. It has a large capacity that is not necessarily obvious until you begin filling it up with what you take on a daily basis. One of the most important aspects we seek in our research is finding a bag that, apart from aesthetics, practicality and multi-functionality, provides superior protection from possible shock or abuse to our iPad. The Ristretto also managed to impress us in this regard.”
